Army doesn’t want war but will defend Pakistan till its last breath: ISPR
Earlier today, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Asif Ghafoor warned India over war threats, saying, “Pakistan Army does not want war but if India tries to initiate war Pakistan’s valiant forces will surprise you.
Addressing a press conference, the director general ISPR denied reports regarding Pakistan preparing for war and said, “Pakistan is not preparing for war. Threats and reports of a war are coming from your side. We are only using our right to self defence.”
Referring to India’s war threats after the February 14 Pulwama attack, Asif Ghafoor said that India has this habit of blaming Pakistan after terror attacks in Occupied Kashmir or in its own territory but if the eastern neighbour tries to initiate war Pakistan’s valiant “forces won’t be surprised but will surprise you (India)”.
“There were lots of issues that I wanted to talk about today,” Maj Gen Ghafoor said: “But due to the situation after Pulwama, I will [only] be talking about that.
“Right after the attack, India started raining accusations on Pakistan without thinking and without any evidence. Pakistan has, this time, taken out some time to respond.
